The £28m man has missed the last two games with a hamstring problem, but Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has revealed the Belgian - who

scored in Everton’s 3-1 win at Turf Moor earlier this season - is fit again.

Martinez: “Romelu has had a really good two days with the group. He trained well with the group and I expect him to train and go through the next two sessions without a problem.

“That means he should be able to play at the weekend. Although he might not play 90 minutes.

”He has been suffering a lot in terms of the feeling of being away from the team injured.

“He’s someone who should be on the pitch. He belongs on the pitch, I don’t think there is a strong case to rest him now.”
